‘Virtually Indestructible’ Bible Built With ‘Space Age Nanotechnology’ Might Last You a Lifetime

Bibles, like anything made of mere paper, are prone to wear and tear, which is why one company has created a “virtually indestructible” version of the holy book.

Forever Publishing is promising that its Forever Bible is built to last a lifetime, claiming on its Kickstarter page that the book is eco-friendly, tear-proof and dirt-proof. In fact, it’s a book that the company claims “literally walks on water.”

“Using Space Age nanotechnology, we are able to print the Bible on an advanced paper that doesn’t use any trees, is 24X stronger than regular paper, and is completely waterproof, dirt-proof, tear-proof, and otherwise life-proof,” the company boasts. “The Forever Bible even floats in water, while keeping your notes and highlighted passages pristine.” ...

"I believe it is misguided for fundamental Baptists to defend a version of the Bible based on a Greek text, prepared by a liberal Roman Catholic, translated by Episcopalians and authorized by a king who hated Baptists. While they reject translations based on a Greek text approved by all the great scholars and early fundamental leaders and translated by good Bible believing scholars from all groups, including Baptists. A.T. Robertson was the greatest Greek scholar America ever produced. He was a conservative Baptist and approved of the American Standard Version. This irony is strange indeed when fundamental Baptists take sides with Episcopalians and Catholics and reject their own."

Hello Dorcas Hello John, if I have enough room:
Notes on "easter"
Sam Morris (outline)

Days of Unleavened Bread (key)
as they FOLLOWED Passover
as seen in Exodus 12:1, 12:11,12:15-16 "...7 days shall

ye eat unleavened bread"
Exodus 12:18..."on the 14th day until the one and

twentieth day"...
"easter" has to do with the resurrection of Tammuz

(Nimrod's son who is Noah's great

grandson)...Babylonian/pagan worship originated
and Semiramis (perpetual virgin)/Queen of

Heaven
(for an exhaustive resource, look up on

www.compellingtruth.org/queen of heaven
many Biblical verses
also may look up "asherah". It's mentioned 40x in

the Bible. Asherah/Babylonian Astarte (consort of

Baal) "Asherah" is also "easter"/"astarte
I think that you may also want to consider that

"Easter" is capitalized so it cannot mean a little "p"

passover meal.
The major concern with the use of easter or even

with aligning a designated day to it is that:
It weakens the position of Scripture.
Mark 7:13 "...making the word of non effect

through tradition..."
Gal.4:8-11 "...how turn ye back to the weak and

beggarly elements..ye observe

DAYS,TIMES,MONTHS..."
I think that a better understanding of baal

worship in the OT will give you a

When I get an opportunity, I'll give you the high points of it, John.
Sola Scriptura means: the doctrine that the Bible contains all knowledge necessary for salvation and holiness.
There are many things that we know in history that are congruent with what the Bible says. Again, the OT is filled with many examples and accounts that deal with pagan asherah/baal worship, specifically as it would relate to this particular celebration. Only when things counter Scripture or are deduced outside of it, are they considered "in addition" to it.
I agree that we ought not to form doctrine apart from Scripture. A careful examination of the Bible will help to put this issue into context.
As far as "christ-mass"...clearly,RCC. I don't even think that any one would take issue with the origin of the word itself. People may claim to not celebrate it in that manner but it doesn't negate the fact that they are using a word which does mean the mass of Christ...which would actually be the death of Christ as is routinely practiced in the RCC. If only the catholics knew. Thankfully, many come out of that. Praise the Lord for those who are faithful in that regard.

No, John...incorrect conclusion. I recommended Sam Morris because he uses "sola sriptura".
I am not able to download sermons. If there is a pdf of his message, I would be able to read that. But as for extra-biblical useage, what I meant was when you said, "...and easter would have been celebrated by Herod as he was a pagan and that was during the time of this pagan celebration." We do not know this from the Bible (scriptura), so if we allow the extra-biblical information to develop doctrines, then sola scriptura is incorrect.

Mind you, I have sufficiently looked into these things to see "easter" as a pagan feast, and Christ-mass as a RCC invention, and so I steer clear of both of them - which is no mean feat.

sc, am I to take it that you are prepared to arrive at a doctrine from extra-biblical sources? Thus making sola scriptura a false position?

I recommend reading the article at the TBS, it will save you a lot of time, and you will learn things you never heard of before.

sc, thanks for your response. The only problem is that historians note that Herod was not a religious man, so he would not have celebrated a pagan or even Jewish religious holiday. He only honored Jewish holidays because he didn't want to lose his position. (there are no historical references to a holiday called Easter in the days of our Lord) Plus the fact that there is no reason for the greek word Pascha to be translated Easter.

I already have Dr. Donald Waite's book on the four fold superiority of the KJV, so I pretty sure I would already have what would be the meat of any sermon supporting it.

Thanks, btw, for your support of the KJV

John, the point of Morris' sermon on easter, was not to defend the KJV. And, I do understand, the idea of "passover" in relation to it. Perhaps you could listen to Sam Morris and then, specifically, take it to task. I think that the word itself offers the clue. "easter" is ?astre, the name of a goddess associated with spring. Again, other names, depending on location will vary. If you are familiar at all with the OT, it is easily found there...
The Jewish passover is always passover...and easter would have been celebrated by Herod as he was a pagan and that was during the time of this pagan celebration. I think that God may have allowed for the word "easter" to be used so that we wouldn't be celebrating what is essentially also known as "asherah". Bad news!! I realize that you don't celebrate easter, but many will still use the word in their resurrection services. Even if you don't, are we so naive to think that following suit after pagan festivals and christianizing them make them valid? We were warned not to do that. And yet, 2 days a year, we treat as special in that regard. The message, unintentionally, is that Christ is only significant 2 times a year. We should proclaim his incarnation and death/resurrection every day! Worse,"christ-mass" isn't even on the actual date.

No inconsistency here. John wrote: "...where it is incorrectly translated Easter"
Easter would most likely have been observed by Herod so it is the correct translation (even in its meaning for "passover"). As stated before, the pagans had festivals which mimicked the Jewish ones.
If anyone is seriously interested in getting to the truth of it, I would highly recommend a further study on it. Again, Sam Morris did a very fine job as he was very thorough and,of course, used the Bible to that end, rightly dividing the word.
sc, the Lord will lead into all truth, which is what we really want. Error benefits no Christian and truth always benefits the Christian. And truth should never be feared. I have thought on these verses for many years, and I believe the Spirit has led me to the right conclusions.

There will be many KJV fanatical preachers who will have preached on this, and the more you listen to them, the more they seem to have a feeble or non-existent point. I am quite confident that the Lord will show you himself. Just as you are confident the Lord will show me. But one of us is wrong.

I want to be careful here as I don't want my comment to be seen as an endorsement of Jim's anti KJV stance or against sc defense for the most accurate English version of the Bible.

sc, I would have to agree with John UK here. Another poster showed that the terms were used interchangeably by the same writer. The passage in Exodus refers to how Jews would celebrate Passover, not something Herod would be concerned about. He would not have celebrated any Jewish or pagan holiday. The Jewish people certainly would not have cared for any celebration for Ishtar so it would not make sense for someone catering to the Jews to put something off out of concern for something neither he nor the they recognized. (remember his province had a heavy Jewish population)

28 out of 29 times the translators of the KJV translated the greek word Pascha as passover. They had a rule to not follow the English Geneva translation (it spoke against so called divine right of kings) and to follow the Bishop's Bible. If you look at the verse in question in the Bishop's Bible it uses the word Easter, something not found in any other translation. So, we will say the KJV translators were correct to use the word Passover.

None of this is about the celebration of Easter by Christians.

Eh? I don't celebrate Easter. There's no biblical warrant to do so.

Now this passage in question:

Acts 12:1-4 KJV
(1) Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth his hands to vex certain of the church.
(2) And he killed James the brother of John with the sword.
(3) And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. (Then were the days of unleavened bread.)
(4) And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people.

Please note the words "because he saw it pleased the Jews..."

Herod wanted to continue his killing, but without displeasing the Jews, and so he decided to wait until after the Jewish festival of "pascha" (Passover) before putting Peter to death. The word Passover can mean either the meal, the day on which the meal is eaten, or the festival as a whole. Obviously in this case (where it is incorrectly translated Easter, probably thanks to a mandate from King James) it refers to the festival.

If one is seriously interested in the truth, one can readily find where "easter" originates. If you can't be bothered by listening to a sermon, then maybe you would like to consider the following:
"After the passover (Exodus 12:13,14), we find that seven days shall be fulfilled in which the Jews were to eat unleavened bread. These are the days of unleavened bread.
The days of unleavened bread FOLLOWED Passover. They did not occur prior to it. Reread the verse in Acts again.
Again, Sam Morris does an excellent job on this subject. And Tammuz and the rest of it really is in the Bible. Ever hear of asherah? ..same reference..even Ken Ham would attest to that. It (the origin of "easter")was on his site as well.
I know it's difficult to give up man-made holidays or, as the Bible calls them, vain traditions of man.
